Is China 'Meddling' With Midterm Elections? Trump Thinks So

Is China 'Meddling' With Midterm Elections? Trump Thinks Soby 👨‍💻 Adam Yardley

If there’s anything that’s been a hot topic in US politics this past few years, it’s election meddling. While US President Trump and his team have outright denied any involvement with Russian influence during the 2016 election trail, the investigation into whether or not meddling behind the scenes still continues. Certainly, Trump defends himself against such claims and decries the Mueller investigation on a regular basis – but with the case set to wind up in the very near future, it’s not easy to see where everything will end up.

This week, Trump has decided to take matters into his own hands with regard to the midterm elections – a crucial point for both Republicans and Democrats, as it may mean that Democrats take power over the House should Trump’s party concede any big losses. Opening the door to the Democrats could also lead to what some press outlets predict could be impeachment proceedings against the President – who has made a number of choice moves during his Presidency which some, even those who are Republican themselves, believe to be going against US and constitutional standards.

Beyond this, however, the President has this week set his sights on China – not in terms of a diplomatic mission, but to point the blame with regard to the upcoming midterms. Trump made a surprise claim about the power during a Security Council session on Wednesday 26th, where he appeared to cite an advertisement in a newspaper funded by the Chinese which appeared to go against his trade agreements. The moment certainly derailed the meeting, albeit briefly, but administration were able to help Trump out at short notice by suggesting that there were some supporting details here and there.

Trump has once again avoided the topic of Russia – despite the idea of election meddling coming back up for air – instead choosing to divert attention onto China and with regard to the important midterms on the horizons. “They don’t want me or us to win because I am the first President to ever challenge China on trade,” the President advised. “We don’t want them to interfere in our upcoming election.”

China has outright rejected such claims as unwarranted. “China has all along followed the principle of non-interference,” foreign minister for China Wang Yi stated. “We did not and will not interfere in any country’s domestic affairs. We refuse to accept any unwarranted accusations against China.”
